The band's namesake and spiritual leader, danfRost, is the frontman both lyrically and musically. His mastery of the Fender Rhodes electric piano, distortion wah-wah organ, guitar, harmonica and rhymes drives the hip-hop soul of this five-piece entity. His songs and lyrics are inspired straight from his schooling as he earned his masters degree at the university of hard knocks. Bass sensei Master Shen provides pinpoint low-level bomb dropping on the hard groove element and is the backbone of the rhythm section. Christian C on the drum kit cruises beats on down the rock and roll hip-hop superhighway. DJ wunderkind J Feather puts a new era spin on the sounds of d*fRost, transmitting the wax joints and delivering sound samples on time and on point. Rounding out the line-up is human anomaly "The Ron" Royer. Guitar will never be the same with this sic-stringed wonder lashing out licks and sewing texture through his craft.
d*fRost's new album, Digital Dustbowl is poised to rampage through the music scene and will prove a testament as to why the band has gigged with gold and platinum selling artists such as Social Distortion, The Roots, Unwritten Law, Citizen King, and the Phunk Junkeez. Production credits for Digital Dustbowl belong to L.A. based Snoop Dogg engineer Tracey Brown whose credits include Santana's grammy nabbing album Supernatural and George Clinton and the P-Funk All Stars. He provides true professionalism and clarity to the sound and feel of d*fRost.
Of course nothing can replace the live version which is why d*fRost is one of Southern California's biggest draws. d*fRost has filled every club that matters in San Diego, Orange County, and LA, as well as being a featured band at ESPN's 1999 X-Games, The UCSD Sungod festival, 91X's Earth Day, two consecutive years at San Felipe's Spring Break Bash, San Diego Street Scene, and the Pacific Beach Block Party (3 years running). Pitted against bands such as Buck-O-Nine, Rocket from the Crypt, and Slightly Stoopid, d*fRost has garnered nominations for "Best Alternative Artist" (1999), and "Best Recording" (1998) at the San Diego Music Awards.
Digital Dustbowl assembles a mosaic of musical genres into a palatable audio kingdom. So abandon hope all ye who enter, for once you pass through the gates to the body-rock realm of d*fRost, there is no return.
